Flattering Big Brother

Yeah, there is something to be said for using your oppressor’s tools in order to undermine them, but really, we all know this is a bit silly. The government is many things, but entirely useless is not one of them. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: I just posted on Facebook to let everyone know how sick I am of our socialist government! MEGAN: ...

Wrapping Up the Year

The end of the semester and the year are great for the break that they bring, but horrible for the stress they bring for a couple of weeks. I’m not sure which of the three–writing, grading, or wrapping–I dread more. ↓ TranscriptMEGAN: Ugh, so many papers to finish… HOBO: Ugh, so many papers to grade… JABEZ: Ugh, so much paper ...

Tenth Commandment

This is one of those real conflict areas of the Bible. We all know how an average nine-year-old might behave with supernatural powers, but did Jesus? I doubt many theologians waste time on this issue, but it’s still interesting. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Rick, what do you think is meant by the tenth commandment? "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's possessions." KID: ... Read More »

Secession Deception

I can’t imagine anyone is serious about secession except for the truly mentally diluted. I assume for most this is a very public way of throwing a hissy fit that they lost the election. It’s the equivalent of liberals who were angry about Bush so they fled to Canada to start new lives serving donuts at TIm Hortons. ↓ TranscriptHOBO: ... Read More »

Jabroni

Life would be a lot more entertaining if worked like pro wrestling. Especially if it was pro wrestling of the era when Macho Man and Doink still wrestled. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: This debate reminds me of pro wrestling. TREY: Don't be a jabroni! JABEZ: what does that even mean? TREY: It means you better smell what Joe Biden is cooking! JABEZ: ... Read More »

Bazooka Joe

I imagine there are a lot of people who look to Bazooka Joe comics for wisdom and life guidance. I can’t imagine there are many people who look to this comic for the same. Wow, I hope not. By the way, Bazooka Joe was not particularly good gum. I just got a lot at Halloween. ↓ TranscriptRICK: Sometimes I just ... Read More »

Planned Obsolescence

One supposes if God worries about keeping his job, he has to build in some manner of keeping himself important. He’s not building new planets and stars (that we know of), so He must be crafting new souls. And yes, that is another comic rationale that I’m sure can offend both sides of the issue. Let’s sit back and watch ... Read More »

Ninth Commandment

What if the Bible stories are all actually true, but simply have minor factual errors? Like it was a bear in the Garden of Eden, or a giraffe that swallowed Noah? There’s a market out there for an alternate-reality Bible. That should suffice in angering everyone who reads it. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Rick, what do you think is meant by the ... Read More »

Eighth Commandment

I’m always amused by the arguments people make to avoid saying they stole. They were “inspired by” or “paying homage to.” They “borrowed liberally” or “copyright infringed,” but they never stole. I know (before you reply with a thousand comments) that there are differences, but at the end of the day you’re playing semantics. Did you take something (including a ... Read More »

Mass Market Advertising

There is always the danger in religion that it becomes more about advertising and meeting goals, than it does about the end goal. Some might argue all religion is already this way, but they’ve obviously not paid close attention. Some truly take it to another level. It’s save them at all costs. ↓ TranscriptJABEZ: Pastor says attendance is down, but ... Read More »
